Thanks for your answer, I installed DKPro dependencies manually and was able to run the similarity comparator based on WordNet 3.0. My main concern now is whether the results are correct because I obtained slightly different results to the ones provided by http://maraca.d.umn.edu/cgi-bin/similarity/similarity.cgi
(WordNet::Similarity WordNet 3.0). For example, given the following pair of words and running WuPalmerComparator (for my DKPro implementation and the Web service), my results are as follows:
Words DKPro(local) WordNet::Similarity
car-automobile 1.0 1.0
gem-jewel 1.0 1.0
Do you believe that such results are fine according to different algorithm implementations? is there a way that my local compilation went wrong and the results vary?
Please let me know your opinion or recommendations and sorry for the inconvenience.
